Coffee at Midnight Oil

Regular price $18.00 $0.00 Unit price per

This listing is for a half-ounce bottle of Coffee at Midnight, a specialty condition oil containing rare, precious, and fragrant essential oils, essential oil absolutes, and herbs, including coffee bean, vanilla, cocoa, and cardamom, among others.

I modeled this specialty love/lust/sex appeal oil on a really excellent chocolate-infused specialty tea that I loved and used to "prescribe" to clients who were going the "tea and bath" route (the "inside and outside" treatment, which is really good for spiritual cleansing, protection, and attraction work especially). It's got love/affection elements, but definitely a strong lust element.

Redolent with vanilla and coffee absolutes (and thus rich and expensive), it does all the good attracting work of a "foodie" sort of oil (the whole "vanilla and cookies" thing) but with more depth, spice, and earth than those sticky-sweet blends, and it's not soporific or sickly. It is, after all, caffeinated :-)

This blend is a richer, earthier alternative to oils like Kaliprix that do the passion, attraction, glamour, and sex appeal thing, but without the strong floral notes that some folks (including me) are not looking for in an oil.

Don't get me wrong - this is sweet - but it's "expensive coffee" sweet and not "two pumps of cheap hazelnut syrup that kind of tastes like perfume" sweet.

Can be used by anyone of any gender or orientation. Herbal/oil correspondences are in line with conjure tradition even though no old-school conjure formulas that I ever encountered smelled anything like this.

I've had dozens and dozens of customers tell me this oil really does smell good enough to eat. It is not, however, intended for consumption or internal use. Do not eat or drink this oil!

Generally I make my oils as fresh as possible, but this one actually gets better as it sits in the bottle. So I am going to make it in tiny batches like I do all my oils, so it will last as long as possible when you get it, but it will only improve with age. One of the ingredients is patchouli, and the very best patchouli is older, aged patchouli. It gets deeper and more interesting with time.

This formula also contains benzoin, which smells wonderful but also has the side effect of acting as a preservative, so this oil could well have a longer shelf life than your typical hoodoo oil formula.

E.S. from OH writes: "This is my favorite love/lust oil. It smells fantastic and quite delicious! I feel like this is an excellent oil for helping get my mind in the right place when I'm doing love work. The coffee smell is very present (and as someone who enjoys coffee and is in a relationship with a coffee-lover it felt like an appropriate choice.) I have a small almost empty bottle of the original, which has aged well and never went bad (even though it's over 5 years old.) I loved it so much I used it very, very sparingly.

"My brand new bottle smells lighter than the older one, which has a deeper, more intense fragrance (possibly from how long it's aged or possibly due to an ingredient change.) But I honestly love them both. I also thought it was interesting that this oil includes patchouli because I normally dislike the smell of patchouli intensely. Clearly I must have been smelling the wrong patchouli! This is a fabulous product and one I will definitely keep coming back for." -2020

HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 5 business days and will be longer for custom-finished items, large orders, and some specialty/extra strength formulas. Why? Two reasons:

One, I make all my formulas in tiny batches, decanting and praying over every oil order as it comes in, for instance. It's not a matter of just grabbing a bottle off a shelf and popping it into an envelope. And I stock only what I know I can use within a certain shelf life. That means I can have unexpected runs on formulas that use up my stock of an ingredient, and it takes a few days for more to arrive. The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and fresh products, made by hand the old fashioned way, by a traditional rootworker with 35 years of experience.

Two, I live in the middle of nowhere and I have to expect time-sucking delays as par for the course, like the internet going down 'cause a cow broke the line, stuff like that.

USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use some dressing oils as anointing oils (which is not the same thing as wearing a perfume or cologne), they are careful to do a skin test first, since they know that all-natural does not equal hypoallergenic. If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.

LEGALESE:  As required by law, all items are sold as curios to preserve and teach the traditions of folklore and popular religion. I don't sell anything I don't use myself, though, and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
